Multi-colored fabrics, so scarce during the war years are still
meeting a strong demand. Much of this cloth is manufactured on box
looms. It requires a high degree of craftsmanship to set up these looms
and careful weaving is a must. The intricate machine shown above
can use four different colors in making cloth, and a pronounced plaid
was being made when this picture was taken. Multiple colors are wov
en in the cloth with the filling or welt yarns which run crosswise, and
the looms's shuttles change automatically to pick up the proper yarns
necessary for the design.

When the two-year-old grand
daughter was with me one day I
wanted to teach her to string
spools. The big darning needle
was long enough and strong
enough, but I was afraid she’d
hurt herseif with it. I wrapped
a strip of Scotch tape around the
pointed end of the needle, press
ing it tightly together, and it

is to keep tourists from breaking
out the beautiful tops of the long
